This is climate change. Do you only care about these ‘wild and exotic animals’? Don’t think of ‘farm animals’ as sentient as these? Well, guess what, animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate change. It is HUGE! So, go vegan already folks. Do it. 🙏🏻 This video is devastating to watch. Push past the sadness and seeming disparity of the video- because staying in that space is debilitating- and get angry. Get fucking enraged. We are doing this. We have to fix it. You can’t just watch a video and say, ‘Oh, that’s not here..’ or ‘What difference will I make...’- doing nothing when seeing this incredible suffering and pain is being complicit in it happening. Doing nothing is not an option. Get up. Take action. Fight for the rights of nonhuman animals, human animals and this planet. Now. #bethechange#takeaction#govegan#ifyouarentangryyouarentpayingattention
#throwback to when this beautiful human was in Vancouver. Jo-Anne McArthur is so beyond spectacular and spilling over with humility, grace and strength. All that she has done for animals, and continues to do, inspires me so so much. @weanimals and @ayearofcaptivity ~ two of the most haunting books I’ve ever owned. @unbound_project ~ I have no words... And let’s talk about the WeAnimals Archive website, a place where Jo-Anne invites all to use her images for all things animal rights, to spread the very obvious truth that all animals are individuals, able to feel joy, fear, happiness and pain... weanimalsarchive.org ❤️🙏🏻❤️ #weanimals#captivethebook#unboundproject#weanimalsarchive#joannemcarthur

Look at these humans!!! I’ve been away from these incredible activists and this place for almost a month! I cannot wait for this coming Saturday. To #bearwitness and stand with my friends fighting for the rights of nonhuman animals. Come see me and join us! This Saturday ~ every Saturday ~ 9-11am at #hallmarkslaughterhouse ❤️🐔❤️ @vancouverchickensave #vancouverchickensave#imback#chickenvigil
It’s with a heavy heart that I am sharing I’ll be taking a break from all activism and organizing for the month of November. I am at a burn out point and can’t breathe or function at the moment. I am reliving a past experience that I realize I never actually processed, dealt with or fully understood. So I am going to take time to do just that and learn about setting healthy boundaries, self care and figuring out to what capacity I can best be of service to the animals and all humans.
I took on a couple projects so here’s a bit of housekeeping;
@vancouverchickensave has 3 other incredible organizers- @roysasano, @zoemarg and @extrasloppy - they’ll be taking the reigns for the vigils and all things to do with VCS.
The Nugget contest is being done by VCS and @geoffregier - anyone who has leaflets and/or the nuggets stickers, if you can’t attend please contact someone to arrange getting this stuff to them.
Nov. 24th is fur free Friday, I had planned to organize a tour of some stores- Holts, Nordstrom, Danier Leather...- doing mini disruptions in each (as we’ve done in the past) and end up at Snowflake. I’ve contacted FurBearers about it- Lesley said they’d be happy to supply up with leaflets and stickers, just need to let them know how many... @extrasloppy has all the antifur posters. So if anyone wants to take that on- go for it, pm ASAP if you have any questions.
If anyone is interested in stepping up and taking the reigns of @langleypigsave, do message me. This would mean taking on social media- fb and insta, and creating the monthly pig vigil events (second Saturday of the month) and attending and such... I’ll also be taking a break from social media- I’ll still have my messenger if anyone wants to contact me- please though, not to do with anything AR... This is really difficult for me to do. I feel like I’m letting everyone down. I feel like I’m letting the animals down. But if I don’t get healthy, I won’t be able to fight for the animals, or anyone... So I’m going to go be in nature and cuddle some animals... ❤️
